Melody Ross makes art for a living. When she isn’t making art she’s writing, teaching, and forever seeking all things beautiful and true. She is the founder of Brave Living (as well as Brave Girls Club and Brave Girl University), is a mama to five kids, and has a weakness for crème brulée. She lives in Idaho with her husband.
I know what’s best for me. There is nobody else on the planet, no matter what degrees they have or how much experience they have or anything, that knows me better than I know myself. So I just have to remember that and trust myself.
Some things we talk about…
- grief and loss and how art can save you and bring you back home
- the secret to following your dream even when you have no money, time, or resources and
- how to use art to heal even the most broken parts of life
“Early on I was told you’re not allowed to do it or you can’t do it and I was like, ‘I already did it.’ It wasn’t out of rebellion it was more like, ‘You guys watch. You can do this. You can. I just did it. Check this out.'”
“Every day I’m trying to come up with a solution to help somebody go through something, or help myself go through something, through creativity.”
